Styling - Meg and Brians Wedding 11.12.11



Last November I had the great opportunity to style for a wedding at Bajacu villa, designed by the famous Mexican architect Marco Aldaco.  The property is stunning; 360 degree villa views of Caribbean perfection set atop one of the highest peaks on Providenciales.




The villa itself is architecturally multifaceted, true to Aldoco's nature, and nestled into a gorgeous tropical landscape.  But it doesn't stop there. A narrow, native stone winding path leads down to the ocean, where the above images were backdropped beautifully by the talented Melinda Le Photography


Bajacu is bold and richly colored, perfect for the "bohemian chic" color inspiration behind mbweddingdesigns palette.  When designing the florals I used watermelon peonies for luscious large pops of color, coral snapdragons and pink genistra for spice, and lily grass to give the bouquets a wild touch.  To coordinate with luxe linens and chiavari chairs I requested a gold hued floral and Gemma from Environmental Arts made the excellent suggestion to use kangaroo paw . . .  perfection! 



As you can see, the bouquet needed to be incredible! Given this gorgeous of a location and this beautiful of a bride, I must say the ladies at Environmental Arts did a fabulous job of breathing life into my vision!


 

 

We created  boutonierres with coral freesia and lily grass, statement making wrist corsages for the mother of the bride and groom, and an adorable peony pom for the flower girl.  The ringbearer carried a small conch shell filled with bright pink petals to hold the precious gems.  Morroccan style lanterns filled with candles and flower petals lined the aisle to the ceremony sight, and what a sight it was at sunset!



The tablescapes featured ocean inspired linens, white coral centerpieces, and vivid florals.  I could go on and on but instead here are a few more of my behind the scenes images of the tablescapes below:






Our congratulations to Meg and Brian!  It was an honor to style for such a beautifully orchestrated affair.
